Oh you made another brown ale? Let me guess: Goldings, Liberty, Willamette, a little chocolate malt, some dark crystal, blah blah blah. Get down with something new. Toasty oats, cinnamon, raisiny malt, what of it? Remember when you brewed like a homebrewer? Thumb firmly planted on nose when it came to the concept of “style" - that's how a homebrewer brews.

4.8 / 5.018 ReviewsGreat, Great, Great !!!Everyone loved this beer when I brewed it. The BIAB process is fairly easy and this recipe is very tasty. One criticism of the 3-gallon kits is that the instructions don't go beyond brewing day, assuming that you are advanced enough to figure out the rest. The problem I ran into with my first batch is that I mixed the entire packet of corn sugar into the wort before bottling. The packet is actually sized for a 5-gallon kit, but this was not mentioned. My first batch was overcarbonated. I didn't get any bottle bombs, but lost a lot of beer while opening, pouring, and waiting to the CO2 to release from the beer. I called NB and they told me to use 3 ounces of the sugar for a 3-gallon batch.January 18, 2014Meh,My first BIAB, which I spilt into three, one gallon batches. All three taste a bit raw or of too much chocolate. I will give it another month in bottle and sample again. Also taking some time to clarify in bottle. Perhaps should have used a secondary.December 31, 2013oatmeal cookie brown alei"m always a little nervous to try new kits for some reason but don"t worry about this one it"s great i just loved this brown ale tasted way better than i would have ever thought like i said don"t worry about this one buy it you wont regret it !!!!!!May 27, 2016Taste Amazing!It is fermenting now and if it taste as good after then this will be a repeated brew for sure.September 12, 2016oatmeal brown cookie alethis turned out way better than expected its a nice brown ale imo. fermented for 10 days i rushed it had to go out of town but i bottled it and left it for only 2 weeks or so and its good i will brew it again when i can. soon as i brew everything else in the world that i want to tryMay 3, 2016Frickin AwesomeFirst All Grain. Turned out great. I like the final product as much as I like Avery's Ellie's Brown Dog Ale and Cigar City's Maduro Brown. I used Wyeast's American Ale II yeast and it was magic. I want to impress my friends with it but I also want to drink it all. What a dilemma. Thanks NB!!!June 12, 2014Best Beer YetFirst attempt with BIAB. By far my favorite beer I've made. Has a nice spicy raisiny taste on the way down..great mouthfeel from the oats..is as described..toasted oatmeal cookie..going to stick to BIAB with all the beers I brew..definitely brewing this again some day. If you're thinking of testing the waters with BIAB, brew this as your inaugural batch!March 24, 2013Very happy with the resultsFirst, about me. New brewer. This was my first go at all grain. Brew day didn't go perfect but not bad overall. Ended up with a higher FG than I should have after 3 weeks in the fermentor ( 1.028 ). Tried first sample today with my wife and of course I am trying it on day 13 ( impatient much?). This is by far the best beer I have made! Another week in the bottle and this will be amazing. Well worth it!!March 16, 2013Don't hesitate.I have read several articles on BIAB, many with concerns about brew house efficiency and enzymatic starch conversion. Well this was my very first all grain batch and not only did I achieve full conversion I also got 75% efficiency. It was just as easy as extract and lots more rewarding. Thanks for making home brew dreams come true.Slainte.September 26, 2012Outstanding!!My first BIAB, First attempt at anything other than Extract. Using basic equipment i was able to turn out my best batch of beer EVER. I've done maybe 8-10 extract kits and none came close to this. It was so good im going to buy it again.December 25, 2012
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 3 answersCan I use 5 gallon carboy to ferment?BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use a 5 gallon carboy to ferment the BIAB kits.Would a 5gal kettle be pushing it to make this brew? I see it calls for a 7galBEST ANSWER: Not enough room for the water and the grain in that kettle. WE recommend a 8 gallon kettle or larger. Cheers!Is there a reason you guys dont sell any of these kits for 5 gallon batches? I just ordered this kit but I'd of much prefered to been able to order it to make 5 gallons. Thanks for the excellent products.
